Thank you very much!
O-kay… back with one last post from south California, got sidetracked by my oldest son wanting to play Endless Space 2 for quite a lot of nights running. Great to spend time with him – who knows how much longer he’ll want to do that - but too late to drive and post after. So, I’m going to combine the last 2 shorter sets I wanted to post into one big one.
Well, here we are back at LA with that tractor ready for a short but nice coastal run up to Santa Maria.
The Beatles after Abbey Road was rebuilt as a dual carriageway.
Another guy sitting there in the heat, watching us drive by. I’d rather be where I am, for sure, it’s boiling out there.
Heading towards the exclusive World Of Trucks Hills district.
Down by the sea at last.
And forward. Malibu here we come. It’s just round the corner.
Nice place to hang out.
Malibu cliffside homes with a great view of the beach.
Some film stars are arriving by helicopter. You can tell it’s a more exclusive beach than the one in LA because the people are standing ON it, not IN it.
Great architectural gems tucked away here. Seems a shame to just drive through...
Back to the coast, yay!
Love the way a train spawns here just out of view and races you north.
Like this… seems to me the trains have got a bit longer in ATS recently, but they could still be improved. American trains can be really long.
A tunnel! Not so common here…
Cargo dropped off at fairly unremarkable Santa Maria, we’re off to pick something up nearby.
Some grit or cornflakes or something to take back to Oxnard.
Don't like my driving? Phone the boss on 702 590 6014 and he'll give me a good stern telling off.
Looking forward to moving north through California to the green states at the top. Aside from the watery coast, it’s pretty arid down south. Still cool to explore though.
Oxnard sunset. And after all, there are plenty of conifer-lined corridors in ETS2. The desert and the panoramic views are one of the things which make ATS different. So can’t complain.
Off to find a motel.
Last full job before heading back to Europe. Swapped trucks with my patriotic employee…
Heading out to Barstow.
I do like this shot.
Picked up one last job to head out of state with along another desert road. I’m going to be away for about three weeks and then will hopefully be posting from ProMods in Europe. I was going to visit the British Isles and then Romania, but all the Black Sea posts from SCS are making me nervous that there will be an earlier than expected release so it will be the eastern Balkans first. Looking forward to it!!!
Border region with Arizona – time to put this thread to bed for a couple of weeks. Thanks for looking and have a good early summertime!
